Weekly Price Action Trade Ideas – 10th to 15th Feb 2019

Markets Discussed: AUDUSD, AUDNZD, GBPCHF and OILvUSD

AUDUSD Daily Chart

Huge Sell Off From Daily Resistance

Price action on the Aussie this week saw price make a huge sell-off, rejecting the daily resistance level and moving back into the six month range.

Price has been moving in a sideways ranging box and whipping between the support low and resistance high.

As the chart shows below, there is also a midway point for this range making it tricky trading anywhere within this box.

If price can continue with this move lower and break the support level, then we could see many more trade opportunities open up, such as breakouts, and breakout and quick re-test setups.

An example of the sort of price action traders could look for formed on the AUDCAD this week with price breaking lower through the daily chart and then quickly snapping back into the old support and new resistance level.

Daily Chart Pin Bar at Support

Price this week moved into the major support level of a boxing range and fired off a pin bar reversal.

Other than the huge spike false breakout, this level has been clearly defined in recent times as we discussed in our 27th Jan Equities Trade Ideas Post..

Whilst price has now moved higher from the pin bar, it was stopped at the trouble area and the area that price had acted previously as a minor price flip.

For price to continue the move higher and back into the major highs of the resistance, we would need to see a clean break of this flip and trouble area.

Strong Move Higher Faces Test

Price had been making a super aggressive push higher on the daily price action chart in this pair before running into the longer-term resistance level.

Price has since pulled back into a recent swing point. This was also the last area price found resistance in the move higher.

This level looks crucial to where price wants to move next. If the smallish Bullish Engulfing Bar = BUEB that has formed on the daily chart can break higher and gain momentum, then we could see a move into the highs and to make another test at breaking out.

A break lower and the level could quickly flip from support into resistance.

Watching for Potential Market Reversal

Whilst this market got smashed lower all through the back half of 2018, at the start of 2019 it has been slowly attempting a price action reversal.

We can see on the daily chart that price has not only pushed off the extreme lows, but also formed consecutive higher highs.

The daily chart resistance price has recently rejected looks to be crucial.

For price to form a new market trend higher a solid break and move above this level will need to occur.
